  • Patent number: 7855572
    Abstract: A variation in manufacturing total costs is obtained by using an excessive loss amount caused by unnecessarily discarding elemental semiconductor integrated circuits occurring as a result of a negative result being obtained in an elemental test but a positive result obtained from a device test, and a short loss amount caused by packaging elemental semiconductor integrated circuits for semiconductor integrated circuit devices that are discarded as a result of a positive result being obtained from the elemental test but a negative result being obtained from the device test.

  • Patent number: 7757188
    Abstract: In the present invention, a block level net list is separated from a chip level net list so that the chip level net list can be created in a form in which a block is transparent to a designer. The present invention determines a destination block for circuit elements that are described in a chip level net list and for which the destination block is not determined, and creates a final net list by reflecting the chip level net list to the block level net list based on the information on the destination block. As a net list can be created in a form in which a block is transparent to a designer for a circuit system that is required to be optimized for the entire chip, the circuit system can be efficiently optimized.

  • Publication number: 20100104340
    Abstract: In an image forming apparatus, the overall length of a heat generating resistor is set longer than the width of a recording paper, which is the greatest of widths of standard size recording papers that can be used on the image forming apparatus. An electrical resistance of an edge area of the heat generating resistor per unit length is set smaller than that of a center area of the heat generating resistor. The position of a boundary between the center area and the edge area is set so that the position of the side edge of the recording paper whose width is the greatest exists within the edge area and so that if the recording paper having the second greatest width is fed by a one edge-aligned paper feeding method, the position of the side edge of a recording paper whose width is the greatest of the widths of the standard size recording papers that can be used on the image forming apparatus except the width of the recording paper that is the greatest thereof is set at a position within the center area.
